Fourteen Vietnamese enterprises are showcasing the best of their agricultural products at the international food exhibition WorldFood Moscow, which kicked off in the Russian capital city on September 14.

The event has attracted hundreds of businesses working in the food and beverage industry from 36 countries and the host, Russia.

It features 11 exhibition sections, including meat and poultry; fish and seafood; fruits and vegetables; confectionery; oils, fats and sauces; dairy products; and tea and coffee.

Canned vegetables, frozen seafood, milk and beverages are among the Vietnamese products being introduced at WorldFood Moscow.

A notable exhibitor is TH Group, which is at the event to promote its dairy products and seek partners to export its goods to Russia as well as other European and Asian markets.

TH Group Chairwoman Thai Huong said her company’s participation also aims to improve the standing of Vietnam’s dairy industry in the world.

Last July, the group disclosed its plan to invest over 1 billion USD in a dairy cow farming and milk processing project in Russia.

Nguyen Thu Thuy, Deputy Director of the Export Supporting Centre under the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Trade Promotion Agency, said Vietnam’s signing of a free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union, of which Russia is a member, presents numerous opportunities for Vietnamese firms, especially amidst uncertain difficulties facing the Russian economy.
